Waste management company Viridor has signed a three-year deal with a consortium to build an energy recovery facility (ERF) in East Lothian, Scotland.
Technology specialist Babcock & Wilcox Vølund and construction giant Interserve were appointed as preferred partners. The ERF will be based at Viridor’s existing rail-linked Oxwellmains waste treatment hub in Dunbar.
Colin Paterson, Scottish regional managing director at Viridor, said: “We will give their teams possession of the site in Dunbar in early February.”
The construction phase is planned to take three years, with completion scheduled for 2017.
